Baseball with Matt - Early Summer Update 6/24/13

Hey baseball fans!

I have some news to tell you about my blog posts coming out over the next four weeks. So, as you know, it's currently summer, which means that it's time for many kids to go to camp. Well, I am actually leaving for sleepaway camp tomorrow. It's called Cedar Lake Camp in Milford, Pennsylvania and I will be gone for about four weeks. Anyway, I'm not allowed any Internet connection, which means that I will not be able to write any new posts. However, I have already written a bunch of posts and my dad will be putting them up for me on Baseball with Matt every four days or so while I am away. After I get home from camp, posts will be going up on a more regular basis. The posts going up will include the actual video interviews with various players that I met at the Hall of Fame Classic, and links to some new posts that I have recently done for Call to the Pen and NJ Baseball Magazine.

Anyway, considering that each of my posts should have baseball history content, I would like to say an early happy birthday to Hall of Fame Negro Leaguer Willard Brown, who would be turning 98 on June 26th. Sadly, he died in 1996 at the age of 81. Brown's nickname was "Home Run" Brown because of the tremendous power he displayed. Interestingly, Josh Gibson, considered to be the greatest home run hitter in Negro Leagues history, gave Brown his nickname.


Well, I hope you all have a great July, and keep checking back for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
